Ron Scott Esq D.Urr passed away on Saturday 2 June at the age of 83.
He was for many years, and up to his death, a member of the Executive Council and the Board of Governors of the Society of St Andrew of Scotland (Qld) Ltd. He had held a number of offices in the Society, including a long term as Treasurer and only retired as Chieftain recently. He had also been honoured as a Fellow of the Society and had been awarded the Australian Celtic Honour of D.Urr (Honoured Person) by the Celtic Council of Australia. He will be deeply missed.
Ron was a long standing identity in the Scottish, Pipe Band and Piping communities in Brisbane. He was a piper in the post-WWII St Andrew's Pipe Band and went on to be involved with the Red Hackle Pipe Band in the 1960s and was also a long standing member of the Queensland Highland Pipers' Society.
Our thoughts at this time are with his wife Irene and their family.
